Window to Hope’s History: Through these Doors

The Class of 1970 pours from Dimnent Memorial Chapel following Baccalaureate. Through the years some particulars have changed — Baccalaureate and Commencement were on consecutive days instead of the same day until 1974, and larger classes prompted Hope to begin holding two Baccalaureates in 1993 — but the essence has not. In 2018 as in 1970, or as in 1929 when the chapel hosted its first Baccalaureate service and before, the event celebrates Hope’s newest graduates as they exit one period of life and step into the next.
